the george w. bush administration. seems like romney is intent on taking us straight back to that. tavis: if he were sitting in the moderator's chair to run morrowt your political ideology aside, what do think the american people need to here with the issues that matter to it and the issues that you write about in "the price of civilization", and what would you like to see the two of them go at it? what would you like to see front and center tomorrow night in this conversation? what kinds of questions would you deposing to them? >> of course, the most important issue for the american people is how we are going to create sustainable and fair and equitable recovery, a recovery that and really embraces all of the people including people who are very poor and are hurting. so i would ask mitt romney how in the midst of all of this, when we do not begin to have the revenues that we need when we are collecting the smallest share of our national income in taxes since the 1940's, why mr. romney, do you propose a tax cuts for you and your rich friend? and at the same time you proposed spend

foreign policy has a similar message. richard armitage was an add voicer to george w. bush. >> reporter: he is urging japanese and chinese leaders to bring calm to the situation. >> i think japan should do what japan can do to cool tempers to explain to the public what is at stake here. i do realize this is a difficult time for japan because of what will be impending elections but also difficult for china. because of her impending power transfer. not elections. so i think if that can be put in the mind of people, clearly, then we will have enough time to be able to resolve this in a -- in a reasonable way. >> armitage says the job of the u.s. is to keep the temperature cool. as lope as pw as possible. he points out american officials are actively working behind the scenes. >> and i know the government of the united states is -- quietly talking with japan, talking with china, to try to -- move the issue to a quieter place. and that's exactly right. if it were to blow up it would be a failure of u.s. dip policemen see, failed our ally japan and our growing relationship with c

purged from the voting rolls. george darby bush only one the state by 537 votes. this idea that 12,000 people were prevented from voting in 2000 because of the voter purge and florida would try to do something similar in 2012 shocked a lot of people. all those different ways of cutting back on the early voting, preventing voter registration drives disenfranchising ex-felons have gone on since 2010 . tavis: let me take political ideology out of this, set mr. obam and mr. romney aside, the reason we vote on tuesdays is because many years ago it was decided that tuesday was the best day for farmers to get to the polls. we have been voting for that very reason on tuesday. why is it that in 2012, ideology aside, that we are having a conversation about shrinking the rights of americans to vote, condensing this process rather than expanding the process? a weekendwe vote on as opposed to tuesday? there are some different ways to do this. other countries are around the world do it in different ways. why are we stuck on this only on tuesday sort of approach to voting? >> i think a lot of

liberties has been devastating. under the obama white house, basically codified the acts of george bush, the attacks of our privacy, the criminalization of the right to protest, the national defense authorization act in which the president has claimed the right to incarcerate us, basically, without charge or trial, and to do that at his pleasure without having to justify that in any way. yes, there are very serious problems. things are not working under democrats, and republicans alike. we need a government that is of, by, and for the people, not sponsored and working for big money. >> jim lehrer. >> that brings us to closing statements. governor romney, you elected to go last. >> i want to thank you and governor romney. i think this was a terrific debate. i appreciate it. i want to thank the university of denver. four years ago, we were going through a major crisis. and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished. and the reason is because of its people. the woman i met in north carolina decided at 55 to go back to school because she wanted to inspire her daughter and

this caucus and george bush campaign's drafting the first ever 12-page secret debate contract. they gave it to the league of women voters and said implement this. they said, are you kidding me? we are not going to implement a secret contract. instead, the release the contract to the public and accuse the candidates of perpetrating a fraud on the american people and refusing to be "and accessory to the hoodwinking of the american people." conveniently, a year earlier, the republican and democratic parties had ratified an agreement to take over the presidential debates, and they created this commission, which was waiting in the wings and step right in and implemented the very same 12-page contract that the league had denounced. ever since -- >> since the league of women voters least it at the time, what was in the contract? >> the contract then set provision that the candidates could not ask each other questions during the debates, no third party candidates would be allowed to participate in those events, had there would be a certain number of audits number that would be supporters of

critically important point and one having troubled with george w. bush in 2000-2004 and going to places along the gold coast or the red neck riveria whatever you want to call it in florida where there are new areas of republican voters, we would fly somewhere or go on a bus for two hours and say why are we here and carl row will say republican registration is this and we'll pump it up to this. dave talks about florida. if we can get 59% hispanic votes or over 60 there's no way romney can win the state of florida if we tweaked the hispanic vote to that number. these successful campaigns are doing exactly what johns talking about. they know exactly where their voters are, they know how to dial up certain demographic groups to tweak the final number in that state. the obama team is obsessed with that. >> it is one of the advantages they have that cuts against all of this other stuff. >> rose: can he overcome that murphy. >> i'm recently reformed political consultant so nobody believes more in the gadget than i do. it's a little overrated like all processed things. when you have the incumbe

of the white house. it's happened before. john kennedy, ronald reagan, george w. bush, all bounced higher in the polls after credible debate performances and went on to win the white house. whatever the outcome, most agree it's the debates that will give us our best opportunity to evaluate these candidates, sort out their positions and separate truth from fiction. not a moment too soon. according to a new survey from the annenberg public policy center at the university of pennsylvania, with a little over a month to go before election day, the public has a lot to learn about the 2012 presidential race. among its findings, only 51% know the romney-ryan plan would preserve traditional medicare for those 55 and older and retain it as an option for those now younger than that. only about half knew that mitt romney would keep the bush tax cuts in place. fewer than half knew that romney and not obama had promised to increase defense spending. only 23% were aware that payroll taxes had decreased during obama's term in office. only slightly more than half knew that paul ryan is the republic
